Sinossi

TV reporter Erica Sparks has become a superstar overnight. Is it due to her hard work and talent, or is she at the center of a spiraling conspiracy?


Erica Sparks is a beautiful and ambitious reporter who has just landed her dream job at Global News Network in New York. And while it was hard to leave Jenny, her cherished eight-year-old daughter, in the custody of her ex-husband, Erica is determined to succeed in the cutthroat world of big-time broadcasting. She can only hope her troubled past won’t come back to sabotage her dreams.


Although the wounds from her divorce are still fresh, Erica can’t deny the chemistry between her and her new producer, the handsome and empathetic Greg Underwood. But a relationship is the last thing she wants right now.


On her very first assignment, Erica inadvertently witnesses—and films—a horrific tragedy, scooping all the other networks. Mere weeks later, another tragedy strikes—again, right in front of Erica and her cameras.


Her career skyrockets overnight, but Erica is troubled. Deeply. This can’t just be coincidence. But what is it?


Erica will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. But she has to make sure disaster—and her troubled past—don’t catch up with her first.

3.0 su 5 stelle Could have been better 26 giugno 2016
Di Jas P - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is the story of Erica Sparks, a news reporter that once had a career, made some mistakes and is now trying to re-invent herself, having lost her previous career, her marriage and custody of her 8yr old daughter Jenny. She is a recovering alcoholic, and this is what basically led to her downfall in the first place.
She lands a job at a network station, an up-and-coming cable network news station that could be her break, and on her first assignment, an interview with one of the royals, hits journalistic pay dirt when a ferry crashes right in front of her, and she is in the thick of it, not only reporting, but caught on camera trying to save lives.
What follows is a story that is a bit up and down in pace with another major incident that gives Sparks another major bit of journalistic credibility, and she is suddenly broadcasting gold.
The story could have been really good from here, but there are a few issues that drag it down. First (and this is the ironic bit) is that it's all in ‘first’ person perspective (ok, so mildly funny?) This in itself is not drastically bad, it's just that it isn't written overly well. I'm not saying I'm the world’s best writer, I'm just saying that the way this book is written makes it difficult to read.
Secondly, the dialogue, both between the characters and the constant inner prattle she has in her own head, is not exactly great either, and this drags the overall quality of the book down as well.
These two could have been overlooked if the story had been a really good thriller, however, you know very early on who is responsible, the author tells you, and it's not for some amazing plot twist, it's just there, and it kind of ruins the story. I got to the end and wondered what was the point?
I will give it that it had some strong female characters, which was nice for a change. There was some decent work on Erica’s character, her past and struggles. There was some quality sections in this book, and that’s what was disappointing, the high quality in some chapters, and the poor quality in others.
I mean overall it is a bit of escapism, the entire purpose for reading, but it could have been a lot better.
I wouldn’t normally pick something like this up (as per a lot of my other reviews), but I was a huge fan of the Newsroom, and for some reason, thought it might have the same appeal.
I hope that if there is another in the series that it isn’t in the first person, and that the dialogue is a bit better, not so day time tv, and with a little more strength to it. It would be good if the plot was stronger also and not revealed so early to make it a bit more interesting. This would make the series a lot more enjoyable.

3.0 su 5 stelle I Was Able to Put This One Down 3 febbraio 2016

I was very disappointed in this book, as I have read and enjoyed all the other books by Lis Wiehl. The plot was both improbably and predictable. I knew before I had read the first third of the book what was happening. There was no suspense whatsoever. The heroine was totally improbable. How could someone with such a horrible background remake herself so totally? Her alcoholism was no surprise, but her intelligence and drive were. Her parents were caricatures, even though, at the end, she tried to find a little sympathy for her mother due to the way she was brought up. I do like that she was sympathetic and understanding of her ex-husband and that she cared so much for her daughter. The first event was shocking but possible; the second was just too much. Machiavelli might have liked this book. I could have given this 2 stars, but I felt generous.

The last chapter reminded me of the end of a Mary Higgins Clark book. I think even Mary Higgins Clark herself would agree. The very end was, I felt, also unrealistic.
2.0 su 5 stelle I love Wiehl's books, but this one, not so much. 23 febbraio 2017

I have been a big fan of Lis Wiehl’s novels since reading her Triple Threat series. I have read almost all of her books and have really enjoyed them. But The Newsmakers? Not so much. The premise sounded very interesting — an up-and-coming investigative reporter who not only witnesses first hand huge news stories, but becomes part of the stories themselves. Is there something sinister going on that is fueling her rise to fame? Great stuff for a story. But this one just fell flat for me. The characters were one-dimensional, and the mystery was easy to spot. Thomas Nelson is the publisher of The Newsmakers, but there wasn’t much in the book that would let you know they are Christian publishers. Besides the language, there is a big creepiness that seemed a bit gratuitous and frankly titillating. I was disappointed in that from a publisher that I have really liked. Thomas Nelson has ventured into an edginess that I have liked, but this one just went too far. The Newsmakers is book 1 in the series, but I don’t think I will be reading any of the subsequent books. I will however, read future books by Wiehl. I've liked her other books so much.

I found this book an easy read, very fast paced, extremely interesting, and hard to put down as I was awake reading at 4am to finish this book early this morning. Who can't identify with the insecurities of Erica Sparks? We all have something hiding in our past we aren't proud of. Unfortunately we don't all come out smelling like a rose with great luck and super timing for that luck. But, this book finds Erica in fear of her life at times as she can't turn loose of a story line that keeps coming closer to home the more she searches, and worse, they know she knows. She's taping the introduction to an interview with Kate Middleton and gets the scoop on a ferry boat disaster as it happens in the background to the open air introduction. In the middle of an interview of the ex-governor of California who is going to announce her candidacy for president, the candidate gasps and dies in the middle of the interview. Coincidence? Or connection? They put Erica in the limelight and the cross hairs.
5.0 su 5 stelle A Thriller of its own kind 8 gennaio 2017

Surprisingly I found this to be a page turner in every regard. The motivations and characteristics of Erica Sparks spoke volumes. A die hard journalist who will seek nothing but the truth. Going up against a sadistic power hungry executive, she still shines as a true investigative journalist. Splendid. I'm off to read the Candidate, the second book in the series!
